Furious 7 enjoyed a victory lap over the weekend, becoming only the third film ever to make US$1 billion internationally and leading the domestic box office for the fourth-straight week. But the movie that’s poised to topple the Universal juggernaut, Marvel’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron, revved up overseas with a massive US$201.2 million debut.

In North American theatres, Furious 7 had enough left in the tank to top all films with an estimated US$18.3 million, according to studio estimates yesterday. While the film has been a huge domestic hit, it’s been even bigger abroad — particularly in China, where it’s set a record with US$323 million.
